'Deakins' Says Goodbye
11 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This had a short-but-sad ending to it as one of the series regulars retires from his job. Jamey Sheridan, who played the boss of "Goren & Eames" and "Logan and Barek" leaves after co-starring the first five years of this fine "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" television show.

Sheridan played "Captain James Deakins." Although rarely having a lot of lines in the episodes, he appeared in 111 shows and was a steady influence on the detectives. From what I could find out, the long commutes from Sheridan's home in Los Angeles to shooting segments in New York City was getting to be too much for him and he asked to be written out of the show. (He suffers from Bell's Palsey, which is why you saw him wearing an eye patch in a few episodes.). His last project is Hallmark Channel movie in which he plays opposite Jane Seymour.

He'll be missed on this show.

Anyway, in this story, Detectives Logan and Barak clash a bit with a Nassau Country counterpart (played by veteran movie actor Kevin Dunn) as a young drug addict is accused of a vicious, bloody murder of his wealthy parents. The more Logand and Barak investigate, even though it's not in their jurisdiction, the more they are convinced the kid didn't do it.

The uncover evidence which makes the murdered father's business partner, a painter, appear to be behind the murder. Leave it to Liberal Law & Order to put in cheap shots against "small-town values" and "wholesome paintings." The obvious shot is to real-life successful artist Thomas Kinkade, who does that kind of "wholesome" work that leftist L&O writers just hate.

Keith Nobbs also guest stars as the kid "Keith Colemar," who is accused of the horrible crime. He does a fine job, as do all the actors.
